April 13, 1943 - June 29, 2020

Barbara “Barb” M. Pofahl, 77, of Kenosha, passed away peacefully, Monday, June 29, 2020 at the Hospice Alliance Hospice House.

She was born on April 13, 1943, to the late Howard and Catherine (Pierdomenica) Eaves in Kenosha.  She was educated in the schools of Kenosha and graduated from Mary D. Bradford High School.

Barb met Philip R. Pofahl when he picked her up at a bus stop in his 1952 Olds and fell in love.  They were married on January 19, 1963, at the First Presbyterian Church.  He preceded her in death on February 20, 2011.

Barb worked as a medical assistant for Dr. Martin for 27 years.  After retiring, Barb volunteered for Hospice Alliance.

Barb enjoyed going to the cabin at Stager Lake, watching movies, reading, jigsaw puzzles, and playing Scrabble.  Most of all, she loved spending time with her family.

Barb is survived by her children Paul Pofahl, Mark (Kim) Pofahl, and Linda (Craig) Lippert, her grandchildren Andrew Pofahl, Elizabeth Pofahl, Samantha Pofahl, and Rachael Pofahl, her great-grandchildren Bronx and Mila, her brother Joel (Sharon) Eaves and her sister Kathleen Eaves.

She is preceded in death by a son-in-law Jerry Holly.

Private Family Services were held.  A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

Memorials would be appreciated to Hospice Alliance, Salvation Army of Kenosha, or to Safe Harbor in Barb’s memory.

Oh, this is so saddening - another classmate!!  I remember Barbara and I don't even remember any specifics - probably just in some classes, but I do remember how she threw her head back when she laughed.  Rest in Peace Barbara - you are definitely in a better place.  Condolences to  the family.

So sad to hear of the passing of yet another classmate.  I remember Barb in school, we weren't close, but I knew her.   This has been a bad year all around.  My condolences to her family.

Barbara and I were neighbors and friends. Our children played together almost daily.  She was a beautiful, kind and loving person.  My sincere condolences to her family.

So very sorry to see the news of Barb's passing.  I remember her from junior high as well as high school.  We sat across from each other in I believe English class and really laughed too much.  She had a great laugh and was easy to be around.  I saw her at the hospital just before she was going to reitre.  Still pretty and friendly and will be missed by many people she helped in her life.  Condolences to her famiy and friends.
